The Path to Peace:

Canada's Hundred Days

November 5, 2018 - March 3, 2019

"The hardest part of this whole job – was having so often to sign the death warrant for a lot of splendid Canadian lives"

- Arthur Currie, Commander of the Canadian Expeditionary Force

 

To highlight Remembrance Day and the centennial of the First World War Armistice, the Brome County Historical Society presents its new special exhibition THE PATH TO PEACE: CANADA’S HUNDRED DAYS on Monday, November 5, 2018. The exhibition will run until March 3, 2019.

This new exhibition presents the last major offensive of the First World War all the while highlighting the role played by local Brome County soldiers during the campaign. The exhibition will also feature key pieces from our military collection including captured German militaria, personal letters from Brome County soldiers, the Mons Scrapbook, military uniforms and much more.
